  1. I’m a Tim fan since the early 80s when I discovered a cassette of the Enz first album at a shop in Colorado. I’m very glad to hear this interview and still in awe of his talent & depth! Wonderful interview, thank you!

  2. Awesome interview, Mark, just like I thought it would be!
    I learned many new things too, even though I've been following Tim's music and Enz history etc. closely since 1983, when I was only 13! How nice that Tim acknowledged your unique & excellent questions. It's fun to see a preview of the cover as well!

  3. Great interview. I was so fortunate to see Split Enz at the Agora in Dallas for the Tide and Time tour and remember Tim coming out in a sailor costume doing Six Months in a Leaky Boat. Also was fortunate to see him solo in Atlanta in the late 1990's.
